Apparently Nasal Masks are not for me
I normally use a Resmed F10 full face mask. I was hoping a nasal mask would give me more freedom to roll around. I tried the DreamWear mask and that did allow more movement, but it was incredibly noisy. I have now tried the Mirage and it works pretty well, but it is a little noisier than my F10 which I think is due to a smaller exit holes. Not as noisy as the DreamWear, but it does not allow for movement any easier than my F10. Also, I occasionally get stuffed up and of course a nasal mask won't work at all in that situation.

Mirage™ FX Nasal CPAP/BiLevel Mask with Headgear
Easy to adjust. Easy to remove. I was glad a friend of mine suggested this one to try. This will be my choice of mask going forward By DennisM, Denver, CO
Problems with Vent
I have owned two of these masks and both broke where the vent tabs are connected and are molded into the mask with in 4 to 5 months. Otherwise a good fitting mask. The vent holes are noisy if you lay on your side and it blows on anything including your partner. By Mike, Maryville, MO
Fits and doesn't move around
This mask fits my nose and most importantly does not move around in bed when I move. I believe this is because of the headgear. The mask is attached to the head and the head swivels on the neck. If the headgear and mask assembly all are attached to the head it will all move together and not cause leaks. The "over the head" top strap on the headgear with the FX keeps the lower strap from slipping down onto the neck---keeps the bottom strap up on the head so the whole assembly can move together when I move my head in bed. I purchased a (returnable) Comfort Classic along with this one. Its mask is every bit as good I believe--slightly larger with the same double seal system. The difference was the headgear. The Comfort Classic does not have the top strap so, on my head, the bottom strap slips down onto the neck. When I turn my head the strap on the neck does not move with the head and pulls on the mask and creates a side leak. My next order will be a Comfort Classic for price and the FX headgear---If I can get it that way. By Arizona Dale, AZ
Comfort at last!
OMG !! I have at last found a mask that fits my slender nose without leaking air into my eyes all night! I have tried at least 10 different masks and this is the only one that is light weight and lets me sleep through the night! By Carol in Delavan,
My old Ultra Mirage was leaking and the headgear would never stay in place. Consequently I was not sleeping well at all. I switched to the Mirage FX and the difference is astounding. Whereas te Ultra Mirage is big and bulky, the FX is small, unobtrusive and has a terrific fit. I now comfortably sleep straight through the night. By Wayne, Virginia Beach
The top straps constantly come off the mask and in the middle of the night that is a problem. By Pat O., Sioux Center, Ia
